Liar, Liar, Charlie Crist’s Pants Are On Fire
Good grief. Florida Governor Charlie Crist has never had to run a real primary against a real Republican and it is starting to show. About a week or so ago, Crist lied and said he had never supported Barack Obama’s stimulus plan, despite signing a letter of support, appearing with Obama on video, and producing a personal video in favor of the stimulus. But it | Read More »
Charlie Crist And the Stimulus Love: “It’s a Bridge of Help”
Here’s a video of Florida Governor Charlie Crist, in his own words, saying “During the town hall [with Barack Obama], I reiterated my support for the federal stimulus package, and pledged to the people of Florida that here in Florida we stand ready to use our share of the money quickly and responsibly to create new jobs and serve our most vulnerable citizens.” But where | Read More »
Crist Campaign, Unable To Prove Itself Conservative, Tries To Show Rubio Isn’t Either
This is really funny. The St. Petersburg Times is painting a picture of Marco Rubio as not a conservative, but a political opportunist. After a week of negative attention and a website designed to paint Rubio as a liberal, Charlie Crist finally had to hire some journalists to do it. Rubio’s fiscal conservatism was called into question as soon as he assumed the role of | Read More »
Does Charlie Crist Have Dementia or Just Like Waffles?
The saga of Charlie Crist’s love for Barack Obama’s stimulus is getting out of hand and harder every day to keep up with. In February, Crist sent a letter to Barack Obama saying Crist supported the stimulus. Later that month, Crist stood on stage to praise the stimulus and Barack Obama. In return, Obama called Crist his favorite Republican. Then two nights ago, Crist said | Read More »
Charlie Crist Is Scared and Lying
Charlie Crist welcomed Barack Obama to Florida last February, hugged him, grinned when Obama called Crist “his favorite Republican,” and then explained why the Democrats’ stimulus was a good thing. That was February. Yesterday, Charlie Crist denied it ever happened. Despite the videotaped evidence, Charlie Crist says he never once supported the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the formal name of the stimulus. This all | Read More »
We’re Staying Out, So Please Send Money
Funny. The NRSC’s Chairman John Cornyn says the NRSC is sitting Florida out and won’t spend a nickel there. That’s fine. Of course they did just send out a big memo to NRSC donors and others highlighting all of the up coming opportunities for them to give Charlie Crist money. The most interesting thing about the list is that an event for Carly Fiorina is | Read More »
Another Anonymous Internet Attack Out of the Florida GOP’s Offices
One anonymous internet attack out of the offices of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) against the Rubio team is a bit much. But two? There has been another one. Last time, Rich Heffley, one of Charlie Crist’s top guys and on the payroll of the RPOF, orchestrated an entire attack against Marco Rubio online, trying to be anonymous, that came complete with a Hitler | Read More »
John Cornyn Puts The Target On His Own Back
This is stunning hypocrisy. The head of Republican Senate campaign efforts said late Monday that GOPers in New York’s 23rd district “[paid] the price” for picking a nominee in a hotly contested special election behind closed doors. But wait . . . it gets better. NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh said on Monday that Cornyn’s tweet was directed at the local party and not at the | Read More »
Charlie Crist Delenda Est
Dede Scozzafava is out. We must now do to Crist what we did to Scozzafava. He’s even more a potential menace simply by virtue of being a potential Senator.
BREAKING: Rich Heffley Admits It Was All Him Doing The Anti-Rubio Website
At first he would neither confirm nor deny it. Then Rich Heffley insisted he was not behind the anti-Rubio website truthaboutrubio.com, but he knew who was. Now Rich Heffley admits it was all him. Notice how he waits until a Friday night to do it. Heffley still denies he was also behind the Hitler video despite removing everything about it from his website when we | Read More »
Rich Heffley Denies and Admits His Involvement
Poor Rich Heffley. After refusing to deny his involvement in the anti-Rubio website to a reporter yesterday and refusing to deny his involvement in the anti-Crist Hitler video, today he is issuing a non-denial. You see, it was not him who set up the website, but he passed along lots of the research. So . . . considering the source file we found . . | Read More »
Charlie Crist Gets Desperate. Senator George LeMieux Appears To Be Involved In the Rubio Attack Too.
Charlie Crist is the front runner in the Florida Senate race. He is also the incumbent Governor of Florida. By any reasonable measure, including fundraising, the Florida Senate race should be his for the taking. Except it is not happening for him. Charlie Crist is becoming so desperate that his campaign has descended to farcical parodies of Nixonian tactics. The campaign has decided to attack | Read More »
There is even more evidence that Crist and Heffley probably broke federal law
Within an hour last night of RedState tying the anti-Crist (no, not anti-Christ) Hitler video to Crist’s own campaign team in an effort to smear Marco Rubio, the website Crist’s team set up had been taken completely offline. It’s back up today thanking RedState for giving it exposure. It’s kind of hard for us to send traffic their way when they have to take the | Read More »
Did Charlie Crist and Rich Heffley Create the Charlie Crist Hitler Video?
UPDATE: Within an hour of posting this, the anti-Rubio site is now totally offline — server will not respond. ————————————- The plot thickens in Florida. A video popped up on YouTube on October 24, 2009, using the standard Hitler clip all the kids are using these days to mock Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s Senate campaign against conservative stalwart and Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio. Naturally, | Read More »
Rich Heffley and Charlie Crist Fail In Their Rubio Attack. Potentially Violate Federal Law. [UPDATED]
I’ve put the original post here below the fold. It needs to now be substantially updated and is worth rewriting. This morning, to great fanfare in Florida, an anonymous website called truthaboutrubio.com went live. The website was registered one day ago on October 27, 2009, but it purported to have content all the way back to 2007. RedState probed the source code of the website | Read More »
Charlie Crist Attacks Marco Rubio With a Fake (and poorly done) Website
Talk about desperation. Charlie Crist has set up a fake website to cover the “truth” about Marco Rubio.. Why do I call it a fake website?

Charlie Crist Delenda Est
Charlie Crist may be well tanned, but he cannot be well rested. After the Chamber of Commerce dropped a nuke into the race this past weekend by leaking polling results showing Rubio has cut significantly into Charlie Crist’s lead, we have a new public poll. Governor Charlie Crist of Florida, running in a Republican Primary against Florida’s former Speaker of the House, is looking to | Read More »
Holy Cow! A Nuclear Bomb Goes Off in the Florida Senate Race
Only three months ago, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, declared by Barack Obama to be his favorite Republican, maintained a 30 point lead over Marco Rubio. The Chamber of Commerce this weekend released a new poll this weekend that has lots of people buzzing in Florida.

Top Crist Supporters Openly Speculate Crist May Drop Out
It has gotten so bad for Obama’s favorite Republican, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, that Crist is on a state wide “I’m a conservative” tour. Unfortunately for Crist, he’s done himself no favors. Recently Crist attacked Rubio via a Miami political columnist. His argument was that Rubio is poorer than Crist and that Rubio supported massive state budgets. Rubio’s response? Crist’s original budgets were larger than | Read More »
Is Robert Wexler Under Criminal Investigation?
Yesterday, unexpectedly, Robert Wexler (D-FL) resigned from Congress. No one saw it coming. One of the suggestions is that he may be up for the ambassadorship to Israel. But it makes little sense for him to resign before confirmation, let alone the nomination. Based on a Charlie Crist campaign manuever, I’m wondering if Wexler might actually be facing an indictment and trying to get out | Read More »
